 The simplest explanation of network marketing is that it is a method of marketing that utilizes independent representatives to reach potential customers that a company would not reach otherwise with traditional online or offline marketing methods.

Companies have the option of investing tens of MILLIONS of dollars in television, paper ads, and celebrity endorsements, OR recruiting independent business partners/promoters/distributors to market their products, and/or services via word-of-mouth.

The word-of-mouth method has proven to be a much more effective method. Why is this? Well, which would be more likely to catch YOUR eye:

A. A Visalus commercial offering weight loss products and promising excellent results


B. A phone call from a friend that you know, like, and trust, stating that he has personally dropped 25lbs and lowered his blood pressure by 18 points by using Visalus products? Weight loss commercials are a dime a dozen. However, it is highly unlikely that you would question the validity of the results being shared via word-of-mouth from a personal friend.

Understand that the aim of this business is NOT for you to harass your friends and family members into joining your business. However, the plan (at least initially), IS for you to develop the skill necessary to identify the individuals within your personal network who may be in position to benefit from the products, and/or services that you have to offer. In doing so, you will also discover those individuals who are open to earning part-time income from home.


This is one of the more commonly asked questions from potential prospects who are considering the Multi-Level or MLM industry. For starters, you should understand that pyramid schemes are illegal. A pyramid scheme is a fraudulent business model where money exchanges hands, and individuals are promised returns without providing products or services to end users.

In illegal pyramid schemes, individuals who are at the top of the pyramid earn money, and those at the bottom are essentially defrauded by those at the top. In an illegal pyramid scheme, it is impossible for individuals at the bottom to reach the positions at the top, and this is by design.

Over the course of the past 26 months alone, Visalus has created more than 700 six-figure earners. It is possible for new promoters of the challenge to pass their sponsors in terms of rank advancements, income, etc. The cost to get started as an independent promoter of the 90 day challenge is $499.00, and Visalus has a training system in place to teach new promoters how to recoup this initial investment within seven DAYS!!!

There are thousands of doctors, chiropractors, dentists, fitness trainers, gym owners, attorneys, and business professionals from all walks of life who are enjoying MASSIVE success in the network marketing industry, as promoters of the Body by Vi 90 Day Challenge.


Are you content with your current employment situation? If you were to ask most working Americans to describe their ideal working environment, you would surely hear things like:

  • No boss
  • No employees
  • No politics
  • No discrimination
  • No educational requirements
  • etc
In the network marketing industry, you are your own boss. Although you will acquire business "partners" along the way, you will not be responsible for the stress that comes along with managing employees, as each of your partners will be also independent business owners.

There are no politics in the business, as you are solely responsible for your own success or failure. Whereas it is common practice for corporations to discriminate against certain employees based upon educational requirements, in the network marketing industry, you can go as far as your talent, drive, and work-ethic can take you.

There are also BENEFITS and PERKS that come along with serving in the network marketing industry. These benefits include:

  • Unlimited income
  • Residual income
  • Enjoying the company of the people that you work with
  • The ability to set your own work hours
  • Low start-up costs
  • Tax benefits
  • Opportunities to win trips to various exotic locations all across the globe
  • Car incentive programs
  • etc.


We are often quick to reflect negatively upon that which we do not understand. I would encourage you to do your research. The fact of the matter is that most Americans are struggling in the current economy. According to recent studies, some 54% of recent college graduates are unemployed. Large corporations are making cuts to the workforce on a daily basis.

There are MILLIONS of individuals from all across the WORLD who are enjoying MASSIVE success in the network marketing industry. This is an opportunity that you can take advantage of on a part-time basis, as you grow in skill, knowledge, and understanding. If you should decide to become a full-time marketer in the future, then that option is certainly available as well.

You Do Not Attract What You Want. You Attract What You Are.

"In order to attract attractive people, you must become attractive. In order to attract powerful people, you must become powerful. In order to attract committed people, you must become committed. Instead of going to work on them, you go to work on yourself. If you become, you can attract."-Jim Rohn

One of the more common complaints expressed by individuals who are serving in the industry of network marketing is that new business partners are not performing up to the level of expectations. These partners are not making phone calls, attending events, working on self-development, hosting house parties, or being fully COMMITTED to the business.

It is very easy to make the MISTAKE of pointing the finger at these new business partners, and blaming them for the struggles within a network marketing organization. However, the truth of the matter is that the speed of the leader dictates the speed of the team. It is so much easier, and much more effective to become the change that you wish to see within your organization, as opposed to trying to supervise business partners into doing what you feel that THEY should be doing.

Understand that I am in the process of developing myself as a leader in the industry, and so in sharing this information with you, I am also challenging MYSELF to be this example within MY team, and to do the things that I would like to see my partners doing on a daily basis.

So I would like to briefly elaborate on each of the characteristics that were shared in the aforementioned Jim Rohn quote, and to also provide suggestions on how one can go about developing these traits along the journey of becoming an effective leader.


People are attracted to positivity, high energy, ACTION, and success. You may or may not realize this, but there is no off/on switch in the business of network marketing. If you are serving in this industry, then people are WATCHING you on a daily basis. Why are these individuals watching you? They want to know if you are authentic. They want to know if you are excited about your opportunity. They want to see that you are in it for the long haul, and most important: they want to know if you would be fun to work with.

It is imperative, that you keep each of these things in mind as you are interacting within your local community, serving on your job, posting status entries on Facebook, and even mingling with friends and family members. I am not encouraging you to portray a fake image. I am instead encouraging you to work on self-development, until you have reached the point where you are genuinely attractive to onlookers.


 The dictionary defines the word POWERFUL as follows: influential; effective; possessing the strength or qualities to produce strong results.

Leaders are attracted to leaders. The best way to EXPLODE your business in the network marketing industry, is to establish yourself as a leader. Each time that you can attract and establish other leaders within your organization, this reduces your workload, and expedites the overall success of your team.

In order to become a leader, you must carry yourself as a leader. An effective leader has the ability to not only perform the duties of signing customers and business partners, but also and more important: to train and to teach others to sign customers and promoters into their opportunities.

As you grow in your ability to assist others with achieving success, you will establish yourself as a credible leader, and others will be more apt to work with you. In short, you want to establish yourself as an individual who walks the walk, and talks the talk.


If you treat your business as a hobby, then your new business partners will also treat their businesses as hobbies. When I refer to the term "committed," I am speaking of the following five things:

1. Using your product. Become a product of your products.
2. Attending local, regional, and national training events.
3. Following your company's system in DETAIL.
4. Taking the time necessary to properly train every new partner that joins the business.
5.  Being consistent. Working your business on a daily basis, just as you would on your full-time job.

When and ONLY when YOU are doing each of these things, will you be in a  position where you can expect the same from the new partners that join your organization. I mentioned earlier that outsiders were observing your actions. Well, this "watching" only INTENSIFIES with members operating within your organization. So instead of wasting your time by yelling at partners, sending dirty emails, ranting on Facebook, etc; focus on becoming the change that you wish to see within your business. The results will be AMAZING!!!
